July 28, 2015 – Haines Highway, Yukon Territory, Canada – Million Dollar Falls. Let the thunder of the torrent shake your thoughts quiet as the green glassy water mixes with air and froths, a fluid transition, frozen in this one place. Always just here, yet never the same river.
This was a stop that once again paid for the purchase of the Milepost. We’re still in the Yukon Territory section of the Haines Highway. I stopped on the way out to Haines, a rainy day, but took my umbrella with a cloudy blue sky inside. There were folks coming back to their cars as I arrived but I didn’t see another person from there until I was leaving. There is a nice Yukon Parks campground here, but I was headed for Haines today.
The walkways seem quite new and are worth enjoying in their own right. Very nice viewing decks, walkways and stairs skirt one side of a small hard rock canyon through which a small river tumbles. A nice combination of natural wood and forest green painted accents really
This small tributary of the Tatshenshini river rolls off a small ledge as a clear green sheet and breaks into a violent foam of frothy white water as it ricochets off the hard rock walls. It tumbles along with a rush and a roar around the corner and out of sight.
